What is the ERC?

The ERC was created to support businesses that kept employees on payroll throughout the pandemic. Eligible companies can receive a payroll tax refund of up to $26,000 per employee.

About 95% of businesses that kept 5 or more W2 employees during the pandemic qualify for some amount of W2. That means if you know business owners, the odds are very high they should file for ERC

Frequently Asked Questions

Approval typically takes 1-3 business days.

A qualified customer is a business that meets the ERC Legal Experts eligibility requirements. This is complex process, it's best to refer business owners with 5 or more W2 employees and letting us determine if they qualify.

There are over 70,000 pages of tax code; it’s impossible to be an expert on all of them. ERC is all we do. It’s like the difference between your family doctor and a neurologist. By concentrating on this one program, our strategic partners understand the intricacies and nuances involved in determining your eligibility and accurately calculating your refunds.

Refer your friends to us and you can earn even more money for every successfully qualified application.

Due to the Employee Retention Credit, the IRS is currently working through a backlog of amended Form 941 filings. This means you could experience an extended wait time before you receive your refunds.

Our customers have claimed over $500 million dollars in refunds for qualified businesses—sometimes for companies that were previously told they did not qualify. It won’t cost you a penny to see how much your company may recover.

Determining the proper amount of a refund is a complex accounting process. Although these are payroll tax credits, what you’ve paid in payroll tax has no bearing on your ERC calculations. The refunds are based on many factors including qualifying quarters, number of employees, hours worked, wages paid and if applicable, PPP loans, group health premiums and participation in other government programs to name a few.

Multiple factors can affect the amount of time it takes to start receiving your business's refund and checks are issued for each qualifying quarter. Typically, our clients receive their first check in 4-7 months following the submission of a claim to the IRS, with subsequent checks coming after that. Fortunately, we have great connections with funding partners that can advance your ERC funds so you can get paid faster if you qualify.

There are no up-front fees or obligations to receive your refund analysis. Once engaged in recovering your business’ refunds, our fee is 15%.

Absolutely! Both Essential and Non-essential businesses alike can qualify, and a decline in revenue is not required. Many of our clients even had increases in sales, but still experienced disruptions or were negatively impacted.

Unlike PPP, this is not a loan. It's money for your business, and it's up to you how you use it.

ERC is a refundable payroll tax credit. Born out of the same CARES Act as PPP, its aim is to provide economic relief for small and medium businesses who retained employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. Initially, eligible employers could only take either PPP, or ERC. In 2021, as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, Congress amended this provision, allowing businesses to apply for both.

PPP was heavily marketed by the SBA, while ERC is claimed directly through the US Treasury. Along with our bank partners, it’s our mission to educate you and obtain for your business the payroll tax refund that it’s entitled to.
